    Connotation
    “If one wishes to connect a mythical schema to a general history, to explain how
    it corresponds to the interest of a definite society, in short, to pass from semiology
    to ideology, it is obviously at the level of the third type of focusing that one must place
    oneself: it is the reader of myths himself who must reveal their essential function”
    (Barthes, 1972, p. 129).
